Pretty in Purple noon time challenge

Pretty in Purple Graphic

To play in the “Pretty in Purple” Challenge, all you need to do is use the color purple somewhere on your card or creation - just that simple! It could be a the color on an image, a paper, ribbon, embellishment, anything! If you upload to a Splitcoaststampers gallery, please use the keyword FLLCMAYRW1. Entries must be in before Friday, May 11th at 5PM EST. To enter, make sure you link up your creation over on the Flourishes Blog using the Inlinkz widget!

I used the small blooms from the Hydrangea set to create this tag.


First I used the Tailor Made Classic Keyhole die set to make my tag using purple card stock.  I used it again on Flourishes Classic White card stock tracing the inside of the die and hand cutting it to layer on top of the purple die cut.  I sponged all around the white panel with Versa Magic ink in Purple Hydrangea and Spring Pansy then stamped the sentiment in the center with Versa Fine Onyx Black. 

I stamped each group of flower blossoms three times on white card stock and colored with Copics markers, varying the colors with blues and purples and even some green.  I cut each out and layered them on the bottom of the tag with a sparkly center using a Quickie Glue pen and ultra fine glitter.
